Decorating for Fall with Cricut is so easy. Over the past 10 years I’ve noticed that craft like decor is so overpriced in the stores. Don’t get me wrong, I love it but the prices on some of the stuff has started to become ridiculous. Over the past year though I have noticed more and more bloggers, even the non-craft bloggers, have been making some pretty incredible home decor items with their Cricut machines. I’ve been following along on their journey and looking for an opportunity to try one out. Some of the Cricut Halloween projects they have been creating are amazing.
With a Cricut Explore Air™ people are making custom Halloween Plates, Halloween Luminaries, and Halloween Fall Signs that look better than what I see in the stores. I love that you control what you choose to put in your home and you can personalize it however you like. Whether you go creepy or cute it’s all up to you. With the custom plates Cricut gives you step-by-step instructions, a supply list, and even tells you how difficult the project is to do. This particular one ranks as EASY.
This project makes images for 7 plates. My plates vary in size and shape but are approximately 9” – 12” each. Images are from the following digital cartridges: Cricut® Teresa Collins-Chic & Scary, Cricut® October 31st, Cricut® Happy Hauntings, and Cricut® Potions & Spells.
- Cricut Explore® machine
- Cricut Design Space™ software (included)
- Cricut® 12″ x 12″ StandardGrip mat (usually included with machine)
- Cricut® Weeder
- Cricut® Vinyl in Midnight
- Cricut® Transfer Tape
- White plates (7)
(TIP: I pick up my plates from Goodwill for less than $1)
Other fun Cricut Halloween projects such as the Halloween Fall Sign look expensive (and sell for a lot in the store) but really require nothing more than your Cricut Explore® machine and mat, scrap wood, cardstock, and adhesive.
For the more advanced crafter the Halloween Luminaries are considered MODERATE in ease/difficulty. They are adorable though and would look great on a mantle for Halloween or a centerpiece for a Halloween Party as well. Each finished luminary measures 4 ½” x 3 ¾” and all the instructions to complete this project can be found in Cricut Design Space.
